HAVANA (AP) — Family members say Conrado Marrero, the oldest living former major league baseball player, died in Havana. He was just two days short of his 103rd birthday.

Grandson Rogelio Marrero confirmed the death Wednesday afternoon.

Marrero was a diminutive right-hander from Cuba who went by the nickname “Connie” when he pitched for the Washington Senators in the 1950s.
